I’m very happy to be able present you this great new fortyFive by Buffalo, NY singer/songwriter Pete Lund . Pete returns with the driving “Gypsy Cab”, an up tempo rocker recorded along with Sound Garrison’s Mark Garrison . The “B-Side” is the completely remastered re-release of his excellent 2012 song, “Last Addiction”. This is the good stuff, folks… don’t sleep. People often wonder what happened to music on the radio… corporations squeezed out the art and soul. The real...

Not merely content with shifting the paradigm, Timezone LaFontaine completely rearranges the paradigm into the form of a sentient, free-floating Moebius strip. The Moebius strip knows what time it is. It heads out on the road to find some music lovers who know how to get...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond.

In the early 80s, while in my teens, I first heard hip-hop music and it was for me… there was simply something about it that spoke to me. It was the future. It was exciting and fresh. A musical genre in its infancy that was finding its way… learning who it was. It grew up over the years… it evolved… still learning about itself. It had a chance to sell out and took it. It embraced the good times and seemed to forget about the important things in life. Eventually it was even used and...

With rappers claiming the ridiculous claim of “King of NY” over incredibly weak beats and with talent that’s merely luke warm, it’s refreshing to hear a Brooklyn MC who IS actually nice on the mic. Partnered with a group of producers who manage to compliment his lyrical delivery, BADLUCK brings you his latest project, “Johnny Cool”… an album that once again manages to walk that fine line between CLASSIC boom bap and modern flavor. A true treat for hip-hop heads to hear! Thanks...

BreakBeat Chemists is a dope new project started by director/producer extra-ordinaire David ‘C-Doc’ Snyder as an outlet for him to drop instrumental gems and to provide a future collaborative platform to work with other like-minded hiphoppadopadelic producers. This premiere BBC selection is only five tracks and yet it packs quite a hell of a punch. Get ready for some serious head nodding, kid. Huge props goes out to C-Doc for once again delivering a stellar selection of music! Of course,...

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years since the release of Nic Bommarito’s great full-length album, “Harp Fragments” . When Nic contacted me about releasing a new album at blocSonic, I had only recently visited his website to see if he had released anything new, only to be disappointed. So, suffice it to say that his desire to release new music at blocSonic was a terrific surprise to me. There are a few artists in the Creative Commons community who never let you down...

In 2007 the MUTE era began in an online forum where Gregory “Tha Silent Partner” Davis and Keith “Formula” Wheeler first connected around their mutual understanding of each other’s musical styles.

According to Chinese philosophy two opposing forces, the yin and the yang, co-exist interdependently to make up universal existence. You cannot have one without the other.

I first heard Jamod Allah back in the early to mid 2000s when a few of his early tracks were released on Chuck D’s SLAMjamz … I dug what I heard and thought for sure an album would happen, but it never did. So, for the most part, this talented EMCEE has remained off the radar for many but a lucky few. An MC who straddles the line between B-Boy and Rastafarian, Jamod truly brings a unique voice and perspective to the hip-hop pantheon. I’m very happy that blocSonic can now be a home to some...
